Battlegrounds Mobile India: Gamers can easily download the game. However, they will still face issues with the server going online. Krafton is expected to patch the issue with an update.
Battlegrounds Mobile India, also known as BGMI may have finally landed on the Google Play store for Android smartphones almost 10 months after it was banned in the country. While the game’s dedicated page on Play Store is visible, gamers won’t be able to play it.
You can access the page by either searching for the game via Google Search or just by visiting BGMI’s official website and clicking on the Play button. You’ll be directed to the download page. From there, you can download the game free of charge.
An official statement from KRAFTON says, “Currently, the closed test track for BGMI is updated. Those who opted for a public test for the game before its launch are expected to get a message which takes them to the Play Store for downloading the game. However, the link won’t work and the game cannot be downloaded as the servers have been shut. We also understand that some other users who had not opted for the closed test are also getting this message. This is a technical error and we are working on resolving it”

Krafton announced the lifting of the ban on BGMI last week. The Battle Royale first-person shooter was banned in India in July 2022 due to security concerns.
